When I read the letter from Erika Hollingsworth about her daughter, Taylor, my heart went out to both of them. For a student to receive a letter about the honors night and then to be totally overlooked is completely uncalled for. Apparently, she was not a part of the “clan.”
I hope Mrs. Hollingsworth and Taylor will continue to hold their heads high and be proud of what Taylor has accomplished. The teachers and the school staff (every one of them) should be admonished for such action.
I’ll just bet, even though she was totally ignored by “the powers that be,” she will go much further and do better in life than some of those so highly praised and recognized.
Hold your head high, Taylor, and show them what an apparently smart student can do. Shame on all of those who ignored this girl, especially Decatur High School teachers and staff.
